Is my laptop completely broken?

  _mxstv 21:42 30 Apr 2017

I bought an MSI notebook nearly 2 years ago and never had an issue. Recently i came home from school and i opened my laptop to watch a movie when my laptop dropped from my bed, above knee height. I quickly picked it up in hopes that it wasnt broken, and it wasnt. It worked perfectly fine till i closed it to go to sleep. The next day coming back from school again i boot up my laptop and its incredibly slow and crashed windows at desktop. My laptop restarted with preparing automatic repairs and then went to the blue screen of death. It said windows boot was missing in the system not allowing it to boot up. Under it was a message saying i need an installation media, because my laptop doesnt have a dvd reader i prompted to make a windows 8.1 iso file onto a usb from my sisters computer. I stick the usb in and start my laptop and it takes me to tbe windows install/repair. I click the repair and go to refresh my pc (as i saw as advice online) and it says drive is locked and i have to unlock it. Then i tried to reset (at this point i didnt care about losing all my data) and it said i had no partition and that i have to create one.

After all of that i decided to take the usb out and restart my notebook and it gave me the blue screen of death with error code: 0x0000185. I tried looking all over the net for solutions i tried many including command prompt.. and this is where i cleaned my hard drive (windows boot manager wasnt showing up in UEFI either). I restarted my laptop with the usb stick in in hoped of working i click install on windows 8.1 creation media and it gives me my hard drive but it doesnt allow me to reinstall windows or fix anything at all.

Now im stuck where when i boot my notebook up it shows the msi logo then says checking media presence then no media present then goes straighy to UEFI.

Im guessing my HDD is dead and i cleaned it so theres no way of getting my data back on guessing... if theres anything i could do to solve this??

Also my question is if i buy a new SDD and install it would i be able to reinstall windows and my laptop will work fine and as brand new? Or do i need to take to a repair shop..

I know its long but i wanted you to fully understand, thanks for staying til this point.

Any help would be appreciated thanks.

It came with windows 8 standaed 64 bit already installed. I never upgraded it to 10.

Just a few tips. If you have UEFI instead of the old BIOS then the original drive was GPT not a MBR disk. Connect the HGST drive to another PC to check if MBR or GPT and convert if needed, link here and after you backup whatever you need I would use the Windows interface. Make sure you convert the right disk! On installing Windows 10, when it asks for a key, there should be a text link to click on where it says you have no key. The installation will continue and it will verify via your hardware.
